The performance of oxygen reduction catalysts platinum, pyrolyzed iron II phthalocyanine pyr-FePc and cobalt tetramethoxyphenylporphyrin pyr-CoTMPP is discussed in light of their application in microbial fuel cells. It is demonstrated that the physical and chemical environment in microbial fuel cells severely affects the thermodynamics and the kinetics of the electrocatalytic oxygen reduction. The neutral pH in combination with low buffer capacities and low ionic concentrations strongly affect the cathode performance and limit the fuel cell power output.

Thus, the limiting current density in galvanodyanamic polarization experiments decreases from 1. The cathode limitations are superposed by the increasing internal resistance of the MFC that substantially contributes to the decrease of power output. The increase of the catalyst load of pyr-FePc from 0. The increase of the load of such inexpensive catalyst thus represents a suitable means to improve the cathode performance in microbial fuel cells.

This leads to the formation of pH gradients between the anode and the cathode compartment. View Author Information. Cite this: Environ. Article Views Altmetric -.

Challenges and constraints of using oxygen cathodes in microbial fuel cells.

A fuel cell uses the chemical energy of hydrogen or another fuel to cleanly and efficiently produce electricity. If hydrogen is the fuel, electricity, water, and heat are the only products. Fuel cells are unique in terms of the variety of their potential applications; they can provide power for systems as large as a utility power station and as small as a laptop computer. Fuel cells can be used in a wide range of applications, including transportation, material handling, stationary, portable, and emergency backup power applications. Fuel cells have several benefits over conventional combustion-based technologies currently used in many power plants and passenger vehicles.

The fuel cell is an electrochemical device that can directly convert the chemical energy of fuels into electrical energy through a chemical reaction at the interface of the electrode and the electrolyte, without going through the heat engine process, and is not limited by the Carnot cycle, so the energy conversion efficiency is high without noise and pollution.

A microbial fuel cell MFC is a device to use for bio electrochemical energy production. Electrophilic bacteria produce electrons in their metabolic pathway and the electrons can be extracted and concentrated on electrode by the electric potential difference i. Galvanic cell. For the MFC technology to be adopted by industry requires a strategy for scaling up, which, in turn, requires a better understanding of the entire fuel cell system and the potential bottlenecks in the generation of electricity. Mathematical modelling has a role to play in synthesising our knowledge of fuel cells, identifying the limiting factors in electricity generation and informing scale-up strategies. The range of interaction that can occur in a microbial fuel cell makes it difficult to foresee all of the feedbacks between the biology, chemistry and physics in a fuel cell in any new design.

The oxygen reduction reaction ORR is one of the major factors that is limiting the overall performance output of microbial fuel cells MFC. Their performances were also compared to activated carbon AC based cathode under similar conditions. Microbial fuel cells MFCs are bio-electrochemical systems that can treat wastewater while simultaneously generating electricity. This co-generative configuration can theoretically replace the existing energy-intensive treatments plants [1] , [2]. Unfortunately, the performances of MFCs are limited by serveral factors that hinder its large-scale application [3] , [4] , [5].

Сьюзан стало абсолютно очевидно, что план Танкадо ужасным образом рухнул. Он не собирался умирать. Он рассчитывал, сидя в испанском баре, услышать по Си-эн-эн пресс-конференцию об американском сверхсекретном компьютере, способном взломать любые шифры. После этого он позвонил бы Стратмору, считал пароль с кольца на своем пальце и в последнюю минуту спас главный банк данных АНБ. Вдоволь посмеявшись, он исчез бы насовсем, превратившись в легенду Фонда электронных границ. Сьюзан стукнула кулаком по столу: - Нам необходимо это кольцо.

 Уберите пробелы, - твердо сказал Дэвид. - Дэвид? - сказала Сьюзан.

Он был так груб - словно заранее решил, что я лгу. Но я рассказал все, как. Точность - мое правило. - И где же это кольцо? - гнул свое Беккер. Клушар, похоже, не расслышал.

Он вспомнил факультетские заседания, лекции - все то, что заполняло девяносто процентов его жизни.

Эту женщину, которая смотрела на него из другого мира. Она наблюдает за тем, как я умираю. - Дэвид… Голос показался ему знакомым.

    The cost of materials is one of the biggest barriers for wastewater driven microbial fuel cells MFCs.
